I have a little bantam partridge cochin who is sitting on a huge nest of eggs. 9 due tonight, plus 5 or 6 that somebody snuck in there at some other point in the last 3 weeks. 1 hatched Sunday, 5 hatched yesterday, 1 more hatched last night...leaving 2 eggs left due today. Guess the high heat has been helping them along a bit! Here she was with the first baby And the 6 babies as of last night another little yellow one hatched out last night. Not sure if the other 2 eggs due today will hatch. I think this is her first time as a broody....she is doing a really good job and is quite nice. I am going to pull all the "extra" eggs tonight and give them to another broody. I'll give the 2 due tonight another day to hatch then they will get pulled too. The first one was a silkie mix, the others all look like cochin mixes. Some have poofy cheeks, some don't. Cute cute cute!
